A big mea culpa to anyone I might have offended on the title of my last article. But the saga continues...and I had another taste of it yesterday at my local bank....
All of the tellers actually had ribbons pinned to their name badges that said, "Can You Rate Me a 10 Today?"
As a customer service strategy, this is flawed in so many ways. And here again is why customer efforts so often crash and burn. Why?
1. Because we attach all of the ills of the corporations' poor conceived policies, procedures and rules on the frontline. And...
2. Because we then put them in a position to beg for a morsel of recognition that then gets tied to their bonus or compensation.
And in this case asking the dreaded and filled with all kinds of innuendo question of...
"Am I a 10?"
What I want to know is if they don't get ranked a "10" what do they have to do? Hit the floor and give their manager 20 push ups?
